Hi Admin

All the pictures I have are of the details. I'm going down the boat this weekend. I'll take some decent ones then.

Custom made double berth

You know, when you build your own boat, you can indulge yourself with features of your own design.

We have a double berth on board which I'm rather proud of, and this seems to be the right moment to show it off, so here it is.

Firstly - just a seat/berth

Now with the cushions removed showing the slats below, and the lee cloth laying on top

Now with the berth extended to make the double

And finally the complete double berth.

Where's the lee cloth gone once the bunk's converted to a double - just in case things get "messy"?

i wish i can to build my own boat :)
Hi Roger

I always find the most difficult moment in any project is the start. Once you begin then everything follows.

Also, when attempting a big project like building a boat, you have to break it down in to small steps.

There's an old saying "How do you eat an elephant?" answer "in small chunks". I often use that saying to keep me on course.

Anyway, good luck. :)

Nice timberwork in those Rustlers but unfortunately the photos have been taken with a wide angle lens - probably 18mm - and the resulting distorted pictures do not bear any relation to what they look like through Mark 1 eye balls.......
I quite agree -- from that view it's impossible to see what the interior is really like.

I'd also like to know why the designer put the chart table to port and presumably the galley to starboard. This is quite against good yacht design principles. Do they use 'interior designers' to design vessels these days?

Don't tell me you fell for all the Valentines Day marketing and blackmail, Jim!
Duncan, you well know that I am protecting my sailing budget at any cost.

It also helps with the culinary delights that we indulge ourselves in at the drop of a hat. Valentines is a major hat dropping day each year.

No, it was Mrs FC's turn this year as I had to work. The effect was fab. Pity is was blowing up to 60+knots, which angled the whole scene by up to 14 degrees, even though tied to the pontoon.
